Brown beats out the other top receivers due to his consistency and extremely high floor. Beckham and Hopkins have just as much upside as Brown, but they just haven't proven they have that consistency yet.Thomas had trouble getting into the end zone in 2017, as the Saints were often run-heavy, but he's the no-doubt No. 1 receiver on a good offense. I expect we'll see an increase to better touchdown numbers moving forward.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
My overall ranking might be too low on the No. 1 wide receiver who has now finished inside the top-three at his position in each of the last four years, but passing on a volume running back is hard to do. Brown is as consistent as they come, as he's now posted at least WR2 numbers in 57 of his last 77 games, which amounts to 74 percent of the time. The only wide receivers who were able to accomplish that in just one year (2017) were Deandre Hopkins and Michael Thomas. He's the No. 1 wide receiver and it's not even debatable at this point. He's like a fine wine that gets better with age. What Thomas lacked in upside in 2017, he made up for with consistency, as he was finished with WR2 or better numbers 75 percent of the time, which ranked second to only Deandre Hopkins. Should some of Alvin Kamara's regression go Thomas' way, you'll be getting a steal in the second-round, as he'll finish as a top-five wide receiver. Most don't realize that he finished top-eight last year despite scoring just five times. As long as Drew Brees is his quarterback, Thomas is worth a top-20 pick in any format.

Brown averaged a league-leading 14.8 fantasy points per game among fantasy receivers and he should continue to be a fantasy star in 2018. Thomas was fine in the receptions (104) and yardage (1,245) department, but he only scored 5 touchdowns. I think he should be fine in 2018 as a WR1 in fantasy and those touchdown numbers should be closer to double-digits in 2018.
